Beautiful night - no humidity and crowd at about 80% of capacity - I would peg it at 4,000 people.

He opened with Lysitrada and then band joined him - same basic set from there.

How was he? - "OK" - in a good mood but having issues hitting high notes - The band seemed to really enjoy playing with him especially on Liars numbers

I bought instant live CD - much better sound than concert - don't know why - but it is
